November brings the first cold, Songraphie lend us their "Toys" to make our room warmer with some childish memories. The duo from Moscow, formed by Ilya and Paul Bochorov, skilled and talented producers, has created something different from everything they ever pubblished for Otium, their former label. These "toys" are the result of a very particoular mix between lot of different styles and influences; clicks & cuts, hard beat, idmish melodies, broken-tek, ambient pads,...

Bacanal Intruder brings zymogen a bit far from its usual habits, but this joyful derailment is definitely a pleasure. A micro-ep with five little tracks and five little melodies sketched with guitars, harmonica, melodica and other strange instruments processed with computer over glitches and digital beats. Luis handles these sounds carefully creating different melodic patterns and, moving from different atmospheres, is able to give you a carefree smile with ironic and beautiful music. A...

Among the artists who combine the aesthetics and sound sculpting of avant-garde with the posse and power of bass-driven urban music, D'incise is clearly one of the most interesting and solids of them all, and his latest release on Zymogen, is only an example of that. Insectes, Attente et Pixels got to be one of the best produced albums I have heard in a while, every sound seems carefully constructed and the way the percussive structures are built, leaves the listener absolutely dazzled and...

Zymogen celebrates its second anniversary with a release composed by Marihiko Hara, from Kyoto, Japan. Here we have one of the most interesting young Japanese producers to date, also a member of the experimental-pop collective, Rimacona-Lab. Cesura, Hara's debut album, emits melodies that have been compressed into subtle layers and thin sound-scapes. The piano is his trademark, and when coupled with the other acoustic instruments he employs, we get digital samples that float endlessly via loops...

The average music savvy already knows that a great deal of the most interesting electronic music is coming out of latin american countries. With Mexico and Argentina at he first wave of experimentalists, we now have to include Colombia, because of artists like David Velez, aka Lezrod. David started his jouney of micro-ambient electronica right here at Zymogen, with 'Retorno a la Nada', a mutant body of glitchy drones and jazz-inspired compositions. But Lezrod's music isn't static, it's always...

For the first release of zymogen.net we bring you the debut album of David Velez, Lezrod, a brand new artist from Bogotà , Colombia. Raln (Retorno a la nada), represents an exploration into David's personal style of composition; these songs were produced between april and september of this year, while David was exploring many different ways to express his feelings with music, but always with his very personal style of composition. The opener "Blach" sets the standard of the entire...

With this release we''re very glad to introduce Ibakusha and his music. During these years Manuel has developed an articulate style of composition through many different types of inspiration, but the most significant influence is, without any doubt, the sound of labels like Merck, Skam or n5MD...somebody calls it idm, but this genre is definitely too tight for Ibakusha''s music. He finally collects these six tracks into "Novctzember", his debut, an album full of inspired songs, warm...

Ordinary Days is a deep and consistent release focused on the latest productions of the sound designer Takeshi Nakamura composed in the last part of 2005. After a nice release on Neureal, Takeshi brings back his skills to create this complex album made of microsounds, drones and cold atmospheres where our Japanese friend shows his addiction to the obscure side of electronic sounds. These nine tracks sketch a development in Takeshi's music through a combination between cold ambient mood over...

After one year of silence Takeshi Nakamura, one of our top contributors, returns with a brand new album, again taking us to the fringes of electronic music. Miscellaneous Goods is a ten track album where Nakamura draws on new inspiration, binding abstract elements to form compositions that cross the thin line standing between sound and noise. Each track from this album has a cerebral birthplace, emerging as abstract figures which Takeshi has tried to fix into such titles as, Gap, Collapse,...

Everything started when Sky Diaries , the original EP by young fellow Fred Baty a.k.a. Crepusculum , was released at 12rec. in December 2006. It was a five song EP comprised solely of incredible acoustic music, composed with a guitar and some decent electronic enhancements. His music left me completely stunned and I immediately thought that the pureness of Fred's guitar-play would be a fantastic inspiration in the hands of electronic musicians. From both Zymogen and 12rec. , several names came...

Takeshi Nakamura is back on zymogen for another brilliant work taking his sound to another level of complexity. This 6 tracks ep has been produced after Ordinary Days following similar processes of composition, always keeping a quality level near to the maximum and creating sonorities similar to his previous record without any loss of intensity. Takeshi accustoms us to pure geometric structures stained with digital rough sketches, sweet discords and harmonious glitches, but with these...

After various collaborations with labels such as Serein, Miasmah and Areotone, the Canadian musician from Montreal gives us this little jewel called "Drames et Precipices", which redefines his sonical horizons. The ones who are familiar with Muhr music will be surprised listening to these new materials originally composed for a low budget movie and slowly changed to a sort of "spiritual...

Diatribes is an improvisation project formed by two jazz musicians, drummer Cyril Bondi and saxophonist Gael Riondel, and D'Incise, an electronic producer focused on sound designing. The meeting of these musicians has created a hybrid between two different conceptions of experimentation in music; free jazz and manipulation of cold electronic sounds. This concept seems to be quite simple since you listen to it: digital noise added to nervous drumming improvisation, shrill sax matched with a...

Currently, his work focuses on finding emotional connections between the physicality of sounds and their contexts. The physical characteristics of sounds (dynamics, texture and space) are explored via a range of processes before...

con_cetta is the first Italian artist on Zymogen, and we're extremely glad to have such a great musician representing the label's home country. Giuseppe, con_cetta's real name, is from Sicily but now lives in Milan, which is the leading commercial and financial center of Northwestern Italy. Sclerosis is his debut under this moniker and could be seen as Giuseppe's attempt at escaping the chaos of the industrial metropolis, generally seen as lacking the color and poetry of everyday life.

Stephen Walter isn't a new name for zymogen listeners as we already heard his collaboration with David Velez aka Lezrod on Data Transfer (zym007). In that track ("Ramute") there were evident recalls of his past works, in fact Stephen (under the monicker SW) had produced two idm gems for Retropublik some years ago, but since then nothing came out...until Monocline, a complete change of direction. This album has a solid concept behind it, explained by the title; monocline is a term to...

Porcelain in the backpack is Marcus Held from Leipzig, Germany, and we are glad to release 'Sand and Loam', a six track ep, which is his very first release. Marcus makes a very special blend of electronic music, combining strange instruments, field recordings, and hyper processed sounds. However, what we feel is most important about his music is the emotional emphasis placed in each of his tracks, regardless of the sonorous differences between them. His particular approach to making music...

"We finally have in hand the first hardcopy and tenth reference of the Modena label, Zymogen. We imagine that it is an important moment, as it is the first off-line excursion for the label and a greatly recognized requirement. Should we say then: welcome to the real world Zymogen? The answer is, without doubt. Between being a concept album and an obvious representation of the activities of the label, this release has a real coherence. Glasshouse 01 is one of those rare compilations that...
